war when britain's survival was in the balance. out in the atlantic, the convoy brought essential supplies, the food without which the population would stop, the munitions without which the war werwould collapse. there were sunk by german ships. nazi germany was in danger of winning. britain desperately needed a break through to survive. it happen here in secluded countryside 40 miles north of london. this is quiet and rather overlooked now, but, 70 years ago, these prefabricated huts were part of one of britain's most secret and model assumptions. it was here that britain broke the codes of the german military. the most brilliant mathematician, crosscourt experts, and linguists were brought together to tackle the intercepted messages of this, the supposedly impenetrable german cipher machine called enigma. the british built this, called colossus. this is a replica of it. it is generally considered to be the world's first computer. with its coats, which had taken codebreakers six days to crack by hand, it could now be crack in a matter of hours. >> we would have lost a war. it is

in britain. >> fox is a very conservative media outlet, it takes a conservative bent and sides with republicans routinely, against the democrats. i think there has been a lot of liberal anger at mr. murdoch over the years. i also think there have been liberal politicians, democrats, who have been more loath to criticize mr. murdoch in the past, or fox, for fear of having some of the kind of repercussions that british politicians were also afraid of. they do not become targets of fox news. >> in congress, concerns are growing, especially after the suggestion, still unsubstantiated, that news of the world journalists may have been hacking the phones of 9/11 victims. calls have been made to the department of justice and the securities and exchange commission to investigate the allegations. u.s. companies are banned from paying bribes to foreign officials. >> last week when the story broke, this became an interesting story to americans. we found it titillating, fascinating, but it was not necessarily penetrating the consciousness of the greater american public. this week, on the ot

, that there was no pattern. and naturally there is a lot of anger about that in britain. so even though i'm sure it was a tough day losing two of his key people for mr. murdoch, these two go back 50 years. but there is no way this wasn't going to happen. >> now what about the relationship between hinton and rebek-- rebekah brooks, does this mean perhaps they were much closer and they knew these things were happening? >>. >> i don't think we know that and i don't think these developments really tell us much about that. it's-- yeah, they certainly overlapped when rebekah brooks was running news of the world and mr. hinton was overseeing all of the british papers. but the question of course is you know, is how do they not know about it or shouldn't they have known about it. but you know, hinton in his statement was very emphatic that it was in good faith that he twice told parliament that this was the work of one person and he said pointedly that he thought that the rot was gone when he left to come to the u.s. to run dow jones and the "the wall street journal". >> rem reider, thanks so much for yo

occurred in britain. it was no accident happened in europe. there is a regulator assigned to aig have not audited their british operations, so we have no idea what is going on in britain. and the 300 man operation for 300 employee operation in britain brought them into total chaos. now, let's for instance take bear stearns and laymen, two of the most famous examples. they had regulators on site while lehman was transferring money offshore a day before the reports of measuring and the money -- they were bringing identity before they report. they were taking it back -- barring it enlisting in this capital the day after their quarterly reports, moving it off short. you had regulators on site should have picked that up. if you have 20 regulators in an institution and there were between 12 and 20 regulators inside that institution when they were violating the rule, what good does it do to bring claymore regulators and if they violated the rules that exist had they not done that. we are now withers said prime lending that those are unregulated institutions. all your institutions to get arou
. so tomorrow, full-page apologies will appear in all of britain's newspapers signed by murdoch saying he's sorry for serious wrongdoing. and his british c.e.o., rebekah brooks, apologized, too. with murdoch's support, she toughed out almost two weeks of angry calls for her resignation. finally today she stepped down. but no display of public remorse by murdoch can stop the investigations under way. nine people have now been arrested, including a reporter and several editors. now, next week, on tuesday, we're going to see rupert murdoch, his son and heir apparent james, and rebekah brooks appear before a parliamentary investigation into hacking as witnesses. of course, the question to them will be "what did you know? did you know what was going on at the paper? and if you didn't, why not?" scott? >> pelley: thanks, liz. news corporation has a value of $41 billion but its stock has plummeted since july 1 when the scandal broke. it has lost $6 billion in market value so far. the resignation of les hinton, the c.e.o. overseeing the "wall street journal," was announced after the market clo

that led to investigations in both britain and the united states as well as resignation of two of the company's executives. sky news reporter jane do you gole has more on this developing story from london. >> the murdoch empire is not popular. roux part murdoch -- roux port murdoch -- they have been centering around members of parliament or celebrities. it was discovered that a 13-year-old murder victim called millie had her phone hacked into in 2002 while she was missing. rupert murdoch came into britain last week and met with her parents yesterday where we're told he apologized to them face-to-face. the parents were furious at what happened. they had been calling for rebecca brooks, who was the editor of the newspaper who allegedly hacked in, calling for her to resign. she didn't at the time. only 11 days later that she resigned. the reason that the parents were so angry is that while their child was missing, they had been calling and calling her mobile phone, leaving message, begging her to get in contact with them. that filled up her voice mail. whenever anyone calls, it sa
continents, australia, great britain, and the united states. he was very active in new york city politics, and, you know, up to now, being rupert murdoch it's a particular problem for prime minister cameron, his close aide, andy coulson turned out to have been involved in the phone hacking scandal of "news of the world," so i think it influences why we're talking about him, and it's a good reason to talk about him. >> i think seeing this across the pond dramatically today with the publisher of the wall street journal getting ousted and was a close tie in this, it was his patch on which things went so horriblebly wrong. he's been running the wall street journal for quite sometime as its publisher. what do you think changes in u.s. politics and u.s. media if this crossing the pond thing comes to fruition, how much would that change things that fox news or at the wall street journal or any part of rupert murdoch's empire? >> you could sell fox to the coke brothers. i wonder what would happen at fox news, but i think both of us know, i have a lot of friends and colleagues there who are excell
government and private enterprise. >> unlike in britain where you have the class system, depending where you went to school and what your parents did and who you were bred into, that is often how you get on in life. in america, i spent four or five years immersing myself in this culture. class system is based on hard work, success and achievement. not surprising to me the people governing the country pander to that by this rhetoric everything has to make a profit. that's the way you have a yardstick of success here, isn't it? >> if you're talking about social mobility, that is always defined as the american dream. the ability of one generation to do better than the generation that spawned them. that was something always quintessentially american. we're tenth in the american dream right now, tenth in social mobility compared to other countries around the world which is like sweden coming in 10th in swedish meatballs. it's inter-u.s. u.s. just a shame. >> and donald trump, i know your views on the presidency campaign were strident. i like him. when he was lashing into china, i thought he misse
of his ceos and now he has to explain all of that to britain's parliament. it's the scandal that prompted this full-page apology in british papers today. rupert murdock promising to make changes in the way his people do business, saying we're sorry. but when we talked to a media analyst in london today, it says parliament doesn't want apologies, it wants to know if reporters were following their boss' personal agenda? >> i think that is the question, that media commentators, competitors and politicians have wanted to ask mr. murdock for 30 years and this is their opportunity to ask it. and it is the bigger, wider question, is there an undue influence between his newspapers and politics and government in this country, or is that a conspiracy theory? >> a nonmurdock friendly crowd met the media mogul when he left a meeting to meet with the family of a murdered teenagers whose phone was hacked by news of the world's reporters. >>> atlanta teachers are accused of fixing the standardized test scores of failing students, the cheating could go back as long as a decade. >>> epic gridlock? massive

of the issue, how the actual order was britain that prevented the fcc from publishing that order, those rules, threw out right away. that allow for further review. it has created a lot of uncertainty. under the president's executive order for agencies to reduce the amount of unneeded regulations, i think this should be first on the list. >> i cannot believe i am going to say these words, but let's stop right universal service reform. what is the status of this? this was broadband before it came out and there was some speculation by the chairman's office that it would be out before the leaves changed in the trees. now they say that will not happen and it is in the final stretch. what is going on? >> it could be the leaves this fall. the universal service is in a dollar billion per year subsidy program -- is an eight to dollar billion per year subsidy program that services a low- income, schools, libraries, a big umbrella. i have been pushing for reform for many years and we have come very close to resolving many issues on universal service in related areas about carrier compensation, exchangin
of controversy in u.s. and britain. a big resignation and public apology in the phone hacking scandal involving the parent company of this network. senior foreign affairs correspondent ammy kellogg has the latest from london. >> reporter: rupert murdock said he was sorry. it was allegation that news of the world hacked in dowler's cell phone after she was abducted that proved catalyst for the current crisis at news international. >> founder over the company, i was appalled to find out what had happened. i apologize, and i nothing far to say. >> reporter: the meeting was private, called by murdoch. the lawyer for the dowlers described the mood of news corp.'s boss. >> i think he was very humbled and shaken. very sincere. i think this was something that hit him on a personal level. >> reporter: murdock is said to have told them that the practices of "news of the world" did not live up to the standard set out when his own father entered the newspaper business. another apology will come tomorrow in british national newspapers with a full-page advertisement by rupert murdock in which he says, "the n
to be rdered mile dowler. in is exploded in the public mind in britain and has spread around the world affecting even u.s. investors perceptions of the wider pire which goes so much widethan these british newspapers. through that period, rupert murdoch and his son james seemed absolutely determined to stand by rebecca brooks, there are very few people in this company who are cler to rupert and the whole family to his children as well than rebecca brooks, she was a very integral memberf this sort of london court that had formed around james and his sister elizabeth and which had included david cameron and other members of the british political media establishment. only a week or so ago rupert murdoch said he had total confidence in rebecca brooks. the first thing he did when he flew into london to try and sort this crisis out was stage a photo opportunity with his arm around rebecca, asked what his first priority was on landing in london. he pointed to her and said this one. >> rose: so why did she resign? >> i think because the attempts to take the pressure off so far had failed. the c
apology from rupert murdock, that apology is in every newspaper in britain. my understanding is that in the not too distant future it will be followed up by some powerful premiseses about what they plan to do fully and also to make sure this never happens again. rupert murdock again one of the most powerful men in media, he runs fox tv, "the wall street journal." all this began, of course, with the revelations of wrong doing by journalists listening to people mobile cell phone messages and this week, there's even been reports that the voicemails of other victims may have been accessed although there doesn't seem to be any evidence to prove that. the prime minister here is even under fire because she was so close to rupert murdock's people and even the police are close to them despite investigating them for what may have been criminal activity. to call it a crisis does not do it justice. >> when we look at the words that were used by rupert murdock initially and from his company when his reports first came out, they were saying absolutely these are preposterous, now we're hear
sky television in britain which is controlled by news corp, so those two entities are very important to have the image of impartiality and so far they've done well on that. >> rupert murdoch has given one exclusive international at this point to his own paper "wall street journal." does he need to expand that, does he need to go to someone that's seen as a more impartial paper to tell his story to get this out of the way for him in. >> you're almost asking me to be a crisis consultant and mon what rupert murdoch needs to do but clearly giving an international to "wall street journal" is the safest thing he could do at this point and i don't think people took it as seriously as they might have say if he had gone to "new york times" or "the guardian" which has done excellent coverage in britain. >> he goes to british parliament on tuesday. will he be contrite? what tone will he set? >> yes, this is his contrition tour so he will be contrite, responsive as possible, given his legal exposure, and it will be a whole new rupert murdoch, one that we haven't seen ever, because he's trying to
